Finally another big win from 16 year old Madison! She had a mediocre 2010, but really got a good win here that she can hopefully build on in 2011! It would be great to see her qualify! :)

Also, she was down 1-4 in the second, and won five straight games to win the match!

How did Namigata get so high in the rankings all of a sudden? I think that one completely passed me by...

Actually was bad tennis from players, alot of mistakes and terrible movement from both. I dont see were Keys is going to be so great. Way to slow for the next level unless she starts hitting serves at 130mph.

I guess you miss the part where she did two final rounds of qualies in US Open and Wimbledon.

I guess you missed the part where you just proved his point.

I didnt know that Grand Slams qualies were on the same level as challengers now. Considering that the pressure of playing in them is about 10 times more than most challengers

It's still the same level of competition though (players ranked between 110-300, and lower than that in the case of the wildcards). She's 28 years old and has had exactly one top 100 victory in her career (Castano in 2006), and one WTA main draw win since that victory. She did well to get to the top 100 through some challenger success, but I don't see how anyone could argue that she's a WTA level player...

Awful match. Awful.

Namigata fell apart when she was up in the first set. I thought she had it in the bag, but then she had a terrible, terrible service game. She fell apart for no reason I could see -- except that she might win.

That's the kind of statement I am prone to disagree with. Generally speaking there is always room for improvement with players and most players within the top 200 have at some time demostrated the ability to on occasion beat top 100 players.

However, Namigata is an exception to the rule. She is no spring chicken. She is 28 years old. And yet in her long 10 year career she has only 1 single top 100 win to show for that entire career, and that was almost 5 years ago. Saying the WTA level is not for a player ranked 106 in the world would usually be harsh and unfair, but in Namigata's case I really can't disagree.

Namigata is an adequate and fairly consistant player in Asian ITFs with weak fields but that is very likely all she will ever be.
